Methane Leak Detection Sensor for DJI M300 RTK and Matrice 200 Series
Detect methane gas leaks from your drone with this Skyport-supported sensor.
What is the Ailf Instruments U10?
The U10 from DJI partner Ailf Instruments is an extremely sensitive gas detection sensor for drones, based on Turnable Diode Laser Absorption Spectroscopy (TDLAS).
It allows you to very quickly identify methane leaks from up to 100 metres away or at concentrations as low as 5ppm.m.
The U10 utilises DJI's SkyPort and is therefore fully integrated with DJI's leading commercial drone solution, the M300 RTK, as well as DJI's Matrice 200 series. These platforms can carry multiple payloads simultaneously to support mission effectiveness and versatility.
Pairing the U10 with DJI drones enables operators to conduct critical facility inspection. Use this combination to inspect and maintain facilities like Liquid Natural Gas plants, gas pipelines, and gas storage leaks in areas that are difficult or dangerous to access.
Thanks to the U10's capabilities, detect and monitor methane leakages accurately and safely to make informed response decisions quickly.
Keep employees safe by detecting and monitoring methane leaks from up to 100m away, with full pitch control for pinpoint accuracy. Obtain real-time readings on methane concentration to pinpoint leaks in dangerous or hard-to-reach areas, while keeping personnel safe.
The U10 has high-sensitivity, enabling detection at a concentration as low as 5ppm.m. A 25ms response time provides real-time feedback to make decisions quickly. The 720p visual camera helps operators obtain an aerial overview of the suspected leakage or leak site.
A dedicated a-ONE iOS app allows operators to plan flights, monitor gas concentration levels in real-time, tag specific anomalies or abnormalities along the flight route, and see historical data.
